go away. he could certainly learn a thing, mitt romney could, about being courageous from john mccain. remember in 2008 when john mccain stood up to the people who thought president obama administration was a muslim. >> no, man. he is not. thank you. thank you. [ applause ] >> jennifer: john mccain earned a lot of respect for standing up and being honest. mitt romney remains silent. silence in the face of these kind of comments is unacceptable. there's a saying that goes not to speak is to speak. not to act is to act. joining me from washington to discuss the republican's race to the bottom is democratic strategist and syndicated columnist karl frisch, and coming to us from boston is charlie pierce, contributing editor of "esquire" magazine. both of you gentlemen welcome back inside "the war room." >> good evening, governor. >> hello, governor. how are you? >> jennifer: i am great. charlie let me start with you. how it is that mitt romney can continue to affiliation himself with people who make inane comments like those. >> first of all the jesuate fathers thought me
that the president won, those areas have turned out to a higher degree than the precincts won by john mccain. it is about a 90,000 to 70,000 percent -- number about 54 to 46% obama precincts have turned out. and we're very pleased with that, so i think you can make a conclusion that the early vote is coming out for the president, and that's a trend we need to carry over the next ten days. bile kicking off about a half a dozen canvases tomorrow. we would encourage people to early vote tomorrow as you go out to buy batteries and bread tomorrow put on the list voting. vote early. go to gottavote.com to find out where you can vote early. >> jennifer: brian is the hurricane projected to have an impact in virginia? >> well, we don't know. we're watching it very closely as of now we're continuing all of our activities over the weekend -- >> jennifer: it's a little further north, i believe. what part of the state are you as chairman most concerned about? is it the d.c. suburbs or other parts of the state that might need more convincing? >> because of the substantial ground g
. thank you. [cheers and applause] >> now, last time i was in pensacola, i was here with senator john mccain. and as i drove in today it was good to see the city seems to be doing very, very well. appreciate, mayor, your introduction today, and i know john mccain was worried. he was afraid when he left flight school that the liquid hospitality business would totally collapse, but apparently -- they used to do pretty well. you know, all across america, people are paying a great deal of attention to this race. they recognize this is a critical time for the country. we face big challenges. we have big opportunities. and i know this is a big election. so the crowds are large, and people are paying very close attention. four years ago, then candidate barack obama, spoke about big things. but now he is reduced to talking about small things. he is shrinking from the magnitude of the times. and so he is speaking about characters on sesame street, and silly word games, and attacks on me. look, attacking me is not an agenda for the future and that's why we're replacing him. [cheering] >> you know, his
they need to clear their conscience. >> republican senator john mccain is critizing the pentagon for the lack of leadership that the military could not get to the state of readiness to get there in time. >> thank you very: many questions were answered as to why the military did not bring forces to benghazi. senator john mccain said there was no way the military could have intervened. >> there are forces all over the mediterranean and europe. they were not in the state of readiness that they could have been. and the aspect of it is, it was well known there were two attacks on the facility as you know. and in april and in june. dinner you can hear more about the special investigation. benghazi new revelation that is coming up at 1:00 p.m. eastern and tomorrow at three and 10:00 p.m. eastern time. we are learning about a foil would terror plot in the indonesia ambassador. terrorist are underarrest. the spokesman told the associated press that the men belonged to a movement for indonesian society. and it was a bomb making manual and a number of explosives. >> she provided a quiet voi
to special interest groups. president obama does tha look at this clip from this debate against john mccain. >> actually, i am cutting more than i am spending so that it will be in that spending cut. john: what? what expending cut? ineased spending to at $3 trillion. but newsday columnist ellis henequen -- ellis henican says i am wrong to be so cynical. he said he would cut, and he spent like a drunken sailor. >> we all want a president who will say something way before he becomes elected and feel like he is completely, rigidly tied into that in ways that he cannot deal with events ashe happen. a lot of stuff happens, some of it was pretty bad, and you want a president to is in there being flexible for you john: he was be really flexible. >> okay. john: when he debated hillary clinton he said -- he complained that government spent some much money on programs that don't work, and he was going to eliminate a whole host of them. >> we need to eliminate a host of programs that did not work, and i want to go to the federal budget line by line, pagg by page, programs that do not work we should cu
the greatest gains, when you compare him with the showing of john mccain tw 2008, appears to be a affluent suburbs. once upon a time affluent suburbs were solid republican territory, george h.w. bush in 1988 got big margins and carried states like michigan, ohio, california, in the four suburban counties outside philadelphia, he got 61% of the vote. zeroed out the democratic margin in the city of philadelphia. if you look at over the last 20 years, there's been a democratic trend in the affluent suburbs, and so president barack obama carried those four counties in pennsylvania with 57% of the vote if he carried the state. mitt romney grew up in bloomfield hills. >> a suburb of detroit. >> well, i grew up in the same area, went to the same high school so i'm quite familiar with it. he seems to be doing better. i if you look at the battleground poll -- the pew research poll where you have a big sample. so if you have a subsample you have some confidence the numbers are good. you see that romney, post-october 3rd debate, is carrying apparently statistically significant margins. people with in
: last time around the president 66 percent. his competitor at that time, john mccain, 32 percent among young voters. how hard is this at the end of the day when you look at this for people to up sign-on with the president when you can't get a job >> okay. gerri: sorry about that. i'm asking both of you. >> youngbear voters were an indispensable part of his winning coalition in 2008. 23 million younger voters went and cast their ballot. the vast majority of them went to barack obama. that is why he has these tail mary's trying to get bruce springsteen and in ohio and iowa, trying to a kid young people up to vote for him. these are not college kids. thousands are coming out on college campuses. the mtv was swayed. nike said, you won't have any hard-hitting journalistic questions. will these tactics work? they do, but not to the same degree they did in 2008. gerri: the question is all about whether young people go and vote at the end of the day. something that i think is really important. this new ad with a young girl. she is an actress and a hit series called girls. i want you to listen
servants warrant that action. john mccain blames the pentagon for not being ready to help the americans in peril. he calls it a lack of leadership. >> they were not prepared. there was no alert of any kind that would have enabled them to reach a state of readiness this that they could have intervened. >> leon panetta has said that military leaders didn't have enough information what was going on the ground and could not, therefore, quote, put forces at risk in that situation. gregg? >> gregg: molly henneberg, thanks very much. >> jamie: let's get more on this from former air force vice chief of staff. a fox news military analyst. general, it's a privilege to have you here, sir. leon panetta says we're doing a lot of monday morning quarterbacking. given all the assets we have elsewhere around the world. it does seem worthwhile to ask you what should have happened and when and what do you believe went wrong? >> the secretary of defense is correct we are doing quarterbacking. if they would tell us more we would quit our monday morning quarterbacking. he didn't have the awareness to commit
higher four years ago at 68%. while romney's numbers are considerably better than john mccain's, which were at 38% four years ago. the cheering was deafening at this large obama rally on cleveland's lakefront but many obama supporters say it feels different than four years ago. >> it's seriously just a different kind of excitement. it's more sort of tempered in like reality that this is a campaign, not a crusade. >> thank you. >> reporter: on the gop side, anti-obama sentiment remains a key component of pushing supporters to vote. much the same as four years ago. >> i think it's more important to get obama out. i do. i absolutely think it's more important to get obama out. >> reporter: clearly mitt romney and barack obama have some complicated relationships with their supporters. but no doubt neither candidate will care as long as the supporters make it to the polls. gary tuchman, cnn, cleveland. >> let's delve into the raw politics with gop strategist mary matalin and democratic strategist, james carville. good evening to you both. james, cornell belcher, the obama 2012 pollster, was
for the democrats. in fact, i secretly suspect that john mccain voted for obama in the last election. but i don't think it's such a terrible thing. a lot of irish catholics voted for jfk because he was the first irish catholic president. i don't think it's a slander upon colin powell to say this, though i don't particularly think it's true. >> the insult isn't that voted for barack obama. it's why. >> it's because he's black. i don't think that's such a terrible thing to say. like i say, lots of irish catholics voted for jfk just because he was irish catholic. >> john sununu has assumed that was the motivation behind what colin powell has done. colin powell has never used that as the reason for why he's voted for obama. >> he's probably wrong. i just don't think it's such a terrible thing to speculate about. >> if you play the race card in putting into colin powell's mouth words he hasn't actually used for his reasoning, that's just playing a race game, a rather unpleasant race game. >> maybe. but i bet there are a lot of black people who are very proud of having the first black president. i do
path. >> i enjoyed your speech. after the attack the john mccain of writing the book in regards to that navy s.e.a.l. about the attack. of threats and he and his family you have been a retired navy s.e.a.l. as this happens to you? >> sir, it has not. what happened in that case was that there were a very specific mission and concerns about very specific classified and sensitive information that was actually contained in that book. of course he was part of that mission and he was 65 there were concerns about threats against him. what we have done in "the warrior's heart" and also in this is all the of permission we have shared is publicly available information about what happens in that navy s.e.a.l. training, but we put it together in such a way that people can think that just about what navy s.e.a.l. do and what they live through but how they reflect on that and make it part of their own lives as they think about their own challenges. and so because the books are different in now way we have not had any -- i have not had any problems. in fact, i've had a tremendous amount of sup
't be flummoxed on sunday. join bob on "face the nation." his guests will include republican senator john mccain of arizona. the meningitis outbreak has claimed a 25th life today. 331 cases have now been reported in 18 states. we knew that the victims were victims of contaminated steroids produced by a massachusetts pharmacy, but what the f.d.a. told us today about that pharmacy came as quite a surprise. here's dr. jon lapook. >> reporter: the food and drug administration tested 50 vials suspected to be a source of contamination in the meningitis outbreak. they found all 50 were contaminated by bacteria or fungus. the f.d.a. says internal n.e.c.c. documents show the company tested a vial from the same lot in august and labeled it sterile. the inspection also focused on the clean room at n.e.c.c. a clean room like this one is where ingredients are mixed to make sterile medication. the f.d.a. discovered n.e.c.c.'s own monitoring repeatedly found mold and bacteria growing on walls and surfaces. equipment used to sterilize medicine had "greenish-yellow discoloration" and "air ducts were dirty." acco
mitt romney's numbers. romney leads the president with white men 66% to 32%, a 34-point lead. john mccain's lead among white men four years ago was half that. >> mitt romney may have a hard time relating to voters, but he is dialed into white men. they are very much attuned to what he is saying about the economy. >> reporter: in fact, in contrast to the president and that mtv town hall, his visits, like the one to "the view," romney sending his wife, ann, instead. his own appearances carefully courting his base. a dozen appearances this year alone with popular conservative host sean hannity. and in canton, ohio, tonight, supporters here hopeful they can overcome the president's small, but stubborn, lead here. the one thing he says that resonates the most? >> resonates most? jobs. >> reporter: jobs, economy, we hear that so much, diane. and with that gender gap among men helping mitt romney, that's why the obama campaign focusing so much on undecided women who very much could hold the key now to a second term for barack obama. diane? high stakes on both sides. >> all right. yeah, david, an
the great john mccain on this point, when he pushed back and said, no, that's not true. >> i have been waiting this whole campaign, we've talked about this earlier, for mitt romney to show one inch of spine -- >> how about shame? >> shame or spine, whatever. there's not a single courageous statement or move he's made as a politician that i can discern, unlike his dad. he's the opposite of his dad who took gutsy positions, even at political cost, again and again and again. >> thank you. >>> coming up, one strategist is playing the role of incumbent. the other is acting like the underdog. crisscrossing the country doing a blitz of television. here is the surprise. the roles are in reverse. governor romney is acting like an incumbent, like dick nixon, obama is acting like the challenger. what's behind both strategies? >>> while everyone was paying attention to the race, the democrats have improved their chances of holding control of the united states senate. how did this happen? >>> see if you can recognize these voices from nbc's 1980 electric coverage. >> now, solid blue practically all
day. essentially, obama won the election before election day. john mccain won the election day vote but obama had already won the election in the early voting period. we have already had 1 million people voted north carolina. -- voters in north carolina. at this point, the democrats are doing better on the early voting, it appears. we don't have a vote count so we don't know exactly what the tally is. if you look at things -- we know things like number of active americans who have voted and that is up from the percentage who voted in 2008. percentage is greater this time at this juncture that was in 2008. the number of younger voters who tend to be more for obama than for running a, a greater percentage is up this time compared to 2008. those are all good signs for the obama campaign. but, what that will mean at the end, we don't know but the obama campaign had a good signal from that. host: we have a chart from an article in the "atlantic." it talks about absentee ballot request in north carolina. host: the democrats made a gain of about 9000. in your observations, do you see more
. helped him in 2008 against john mccain, who seemed so frenetic with the financial crisis. obama, mr. cool, mr. laid back. looks like he is calm in a crisis. you're saying this is a different obama we're seeing? >> yes. when the sun is shining, reality is different. what happened is that we heard the mantra for a long time now. we always knew this would be a close race. well, maybe his handlers did but obama never did. you have to believe inside. now came denver. he began to understand, this is reality. he is in danger of losing, and everything that supported him, all of that sense of vast crowds, imagine what happened yesterday in colorado. i you took a look admit mitt's immense crowds, that evehicled the same tremendous passion that obama had, only it was mitt romney. so you have this enraged president. and it comes out he can't stop, just as biden cannot stop, you cannot stop behaving inappropriately. >> dan. >> the president's campaign but out a 20-page pamphlet. >> a big part of this week, saying, i do have an agenda, responding to the romney criticism that he doesn't for the second t
the advantage. the romney campaign says they're doing much better than john mccain's campaign. >> just getting back to florida real quickly, you mentioned mitt romney's events there, one exactly where you are at the moment. but what is he going to be focusing on specifically in florida? who is he targeting? >> reporter: he's going to be targeting early voters for sure, but also he's going to be targeting those remaining undecided voters. also one of the other missions today is to kind of excite the base, the republicans and conservatives here in florida and get them out to the polls. he's going to be joined in all three stops by senator marco rubio, the freshman senator here, a very popular republican. he's also going to talk about the economy. that's really his wheelhouse. yesterday's gdp report was pretty favorable. the obama campaign saying this is proof that the economy is starting to rebound, but mitt romney in a big speech in iowa on the economy said just the opposite. >> today we received the latest round of discouraging economic news. last quarter, our economy grew at just 2%. after th
hillary clinton there. of course, he won iowa against john mccain in 2008. polls have always shown president obama up by a couple of points in iowa. that has tightened a little bit but the democrats are feeling confident about iowa, a two- or three-point cushion for the president there. and some of the issues for iowa are different from the rest of the nation. another thing they can point out, they can afford to lose iowa. as long as the president wins nevada and ohio, let iowa go and new hampshire. they're going to continue to hard there but there are a lot more different places where the president can get the 271. >> eliot: it sounds like the president may not be sleeping well, but he's sleeping better than mitt romney if you sum it all up. david shuster, thank you so much. >> you're welcome. >> eliot: i'm heading over to hbo for realtime with bill maher. i'll see you back here on monday.
obama in 2008. john mccain was aggressively pro war in middle east, and appeared to be headed in the wrong direction by colin powell. the same neo-conservatives have gone into the romney camp. so colin powell is behind barack obama again. >> he the president got us out of war, and did not get us in any new wars i think we ought to keep on the track that we are on with respect to governor romney i have the utmost respect for him. but as i listen to what his proposals are, especially with respect to dealing with our most significant issue with the economy, it's cut taxes and compensate for that with other things. but that compensation does not cover all of the cuts intended or the new expenses associated with defense. >> cenk: so interesting intelligent comments about mitt romney foreign policy and domestic policy. but john sunuunu has a different idea why colin powell is backing barack obama. >> frankly when you take a look at colin powell. you have to wonder if that is based on issues or is there a slightly different reason for preferring barack obama. >> what reason would tha
at the polls what you will see is white noncollege voters. a group that was 58-40 for john mccain nationally four years ago are not giving romney in ohio that much of an edge. and so i think there is some gain that the democrats have gotten from that -- that huge barrage of antiromney ads they ran before the convention. i would say this, though, sean. i think there is some reason to beware arery of the ohio polls. we are seeing results there in the most recent weeks there varying in between a tie and a five point obama swing. but you we are also seeing in the polls almost all of them the 11 in which the real clear politics .com average is based romney way ahead as much as is 20 points among independents and when you look at the party identification figure there, the average in those 11 polls is 39-32, a 7-point advantage. that is essentially equivalent to what the exit poll proclaimed although as josh jordan points out in national review the exit poll party i.d. doesn't seem to match with the actual results in the exit the poll or the actual results and he estimates that the democratic party
. and john mccain blames the pentagon for not being ready to help those americans in peril. he basketballs it -- he calls it a, quote, lack of leadership. >> they were not prepared and there was no alert of any kind that would have enabled him to reach a state of readiness. >> the defense secretary leon panetta said that military leaders didn't have enough information about what was going on on the ground and therefore could not, quote, put forces at risk in that situation. arthel? >> thank you very much. we want to remind you to catch a special investigation into the deadly attack airing this weekend, "benghazi, new revelations" breaking down the details of the attack. you can watch at 3:00 and 10:00 eastern time. that's on sunday. >>> when we come back, growing fear in michigan as a shooting spree has another victim. the police need your help in tracking down this gunman. >> and still ahead, president obama tries to nail down a key swing state that he won in 2008. we'll tell you where he is and how close the race is there. that's coming up. >>> a new gallup poll is getting a lot of atten
